This trip is ideal if you are keen to trek in the Khumbu (Everest) area high in the heart of the mountains and surrounded by dramatic peaks. Accommodation is in comfortable lodges (a far cry from the traditional tea houses) which provide a welcome respite after a day of trekking. After exploring Kathmandu’s sites with your guide, you reach the start of the Everest trek on a scenic flight to Lukla. On your second day you’ll find yourself in Namche Bazaar – the Capital of the Sherpas – the final approach to which gives you your first views of Everest itself. For this itinerary a reasonable level of fitness is required although with your own private guide you will be able to trek at your own pace.

Day 3 Monjo
Day 4 Namche Bazaar
Today you leave Monjo and trek up to Namche Bazaar. This is quite a climb, so make sure you are well rested and have had a good breakfast. Once you arrive in Namche you may just want to enjoy the good food and views from one of the many rooftop cafes, but there is also a wonderful viewpoint and a nearby museum that you may want to visit above the town.

Today carry on down the other side of the ridge on a shallowly descending path through a rhododendron forest to Devuche, where there are a few teahouses and a small nunnery in a very peaceful location.

The lodge in Pangboche is located right along the trail to Everest and almost at the base of the mountain Ama Dablam.
